Agreed, Each weeks ever thinner issue of Aviation Leak and Space Mythology shows what the future holds. I don't think the long-term prospects for foreign sales are that good. As prices go up, numbers go down. As numbers go down, individual prices go up. It is a well known and often fatal cost spiral. During the Eisenhower defense cuts there were many programs canceled, many more cut back. The cost/numbers spiral did in the F-22 and it could end up reducing the F-35 program significantly.
